Due to the Coronavirus outbreak Creative Folkestone have closed their venue, Folkestone Quarterhouse, until Tuesday 14 April. As such this event has now been postponed. To read Creative Folkestone’s official statement click here.

Our friends at Violet Pictures are hosting a Doc Club evening at Folkestone Quarterhouse on Wednesday 25 March. Shooting the Mafia is a documentary film directed by Kim Longinotto about Italian photographer Letizia Battaglia and her career documenting the life and crimes of the Mafia in and around Palermo. Battaglia offers a glimpse into life under Mafia rule and those who live through it.



Synopsis:

In the streets of Sicily beautiful, gutsy Letizia Battaglia pointed her camera straight into the heart of the Mafia that surrounded her and began to shoot.

The striking, life-threatening photos she took documenting the rule of the Cosa Nostra define her career.

Shooting the Mafia weaves together Battaglia’s striking black-and-white photographs, rare archival footage, classic Italian films and the now 84-year-old’s own memories to paint a portrait of a remarkable woman whose bravery and defiance helped expose the Mafia’s brutal crimes.

A skype Q&A will follow the screening hosted by Violet Pictures.

Booksmart (15)

Academic overachievers Amy and Molly thought keeping their noses to the grindstone gave them a leg up on their high school peers. But on the eve of graduation, the best friends suddenly realize that they may have missed out on the special moments of their teenage years. Determined to make up for lost time, the girls decide to cram four years of not-to-be missed fun into one night. A chaotic adventure that no amount of book smarts could prepare them for.

“Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut is a funny, filthy, female-fronted competitor to Superbad that boasts its own distinctive style.” The Guardian
